Teachers and teacher educators interested in synthesizing their current practice with new mathematics standards will welcome this highly useful volume. Author Mary Kay Stein and her colleagues at the QUASAR Project at the University of Pittsburgh present prevalent cases of mathematics instruction drawn from their research of nearly 500 classroom lessons. The Mathematical Tasks Framework, developed by the authors and explained thoroughly in the book, offers teachers and teacher educators the means to evaluate instructional decisions, the choice of materials, and learning outcomes, and the case studies afford readers the opportunity to ground these ideas in actual classroom practice. Readers will gain insight about how to foster a challenging, cognitively rich, and exciting classroom climate that propels students toward a richer understanding of mathematics. “If every teacher and teacher educator took the opportunity to study and discuss these cases, students everywhere would know and value mathematics as the national standards have envisioned.” —Susan Loucks-Horsley, Director of Professional Development for the National Institute for Science Education “The power of case discussions can be fully realized using this book as a tool. Equally important, teachers will be highly motivated because they see their own practice mirrored in the cases.” —Carne Barnett, WestEd, San Francisco, CA

Mathematics Teacher Noticing is the first book to examine research on the particular type of noticing done by teachers---how teachers pay attention to and make sense of what happens in the complexity of instructional situations. In the midst of all that is happening in a classroom, where do mathematics teachers look, what do they see, and what sense do they make of it? This groundbreaking collection begins with an overview of the construct of noticing and the various historical, theoretical, and methodological perspectives on teacher noticing. It then focuses on studies of mathematics teacher noticing in the context of teaching and learning and concludes by suggesting links to other constructs integral to teaching. By collecting the work of leaders in the field in one volume, the editors present the current state of research and provide ideas for how future work could further the field.

Updated and streamlined for easier use, TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION FOR MEANINGFUL CLASSROOM USE: A STANDARDS-BASED APPROACH, 2E, International Edition equips readers with the knowledge, creative and critical thinking skills, and confidence needed to become "self-directed learners" who can successfully navigate the constantly changing environment of technology integration in the classroom. Using the principles of self-directed learning as its foundation, the book aims to help readers learn to evaluate and reflect on professional practice to make informed decisions regarding the use of technology in support of student learning. The first educational technology book organized around the 2008 National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), this standards-based approach provides the framework for developing, modeling, and teaching the skills and knowledge necessary for integrating technology in authentic teaching and learning. An end-of-book supplement provides examples of technology integration in practice within specific content areas, guided by the national standards that apply to each content domain.

New technologies can help teachers and trainers empower learners and create exciting new learning opportunities for students. However, these facilitators must also create e-learning contexts which are properly scaffolded to serve the needs of learners. Cases on E-Learning Management: Development and Implementation meets this challenge by providing innovative case studies covering a range of topics such as teacher education, mobile and blended learning strategies, e-learning tutorial content, digital cognitive games, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education, and distance education. This casebook will enhance the work of educators, instructional designers, trainers, administrators, and researchers in the areas of online learning and distance learning.

The Gift of Danger

Mary Stein took up aikido in her mid-fifties and quickly learned what it really means to face danger--both external and internal. In this powerful collection of short essays, she vividly describes learning an active and spirited defense on the mat, in the process uncovering a lifetime of habitual tensions and emotional reactions, of flight and ineffective fight. Stein's thoughtful musings make clear how the practice of aikido can show what is really needed, right now. The Gift of Danger is aimed at men and women for whom the question of what is genuine in their lives has taken on fresh urgency. Above all, Stein shows that a sense of danger has extraordinary importance for the martial artist; when danger is present during training, one learns to test limits and respond quickly and accurately. We follow the author as she stands, tentative but determined, on the razor's edge between knowing and not knowing, judgment and impartiality--the only place where real growth can occur. The Gift of Danger is both a striking story of personal growth and a potent argument for aikido as a model for human behavior.
